Some 654,000 pickup trucks that were previously recalled for a fire risk due to engine block heater cable defects are being recalled by Ford.
Ford has issued a recall for 2015 to 2019 Ford F-150 and Super Duty pickup trucks. The latest recall comes after a larger one back in December for 874,000 of the same vehicles for the same issue.
About 327,000 of these vehicles are located here in the United States, the rest are in Canada and US federalized territories.
The recalled vehicles were built from March 18, 2014 to Nov. 17, 2018.
The problem fixed last time was the engine block heater cable was susceptible to splice-connector corrosion. The concern was that a short would trip household circuit breakers or start fires. On this second recall, Ford said that the inspection process from the initial recall may have damaged some splice connectors. Those vehicles affected by this might cause shorts, trip household circuit breakers or set off a fire.
